Krista Stinson

Krista Stinson is the Program Manager at #YesWeCode. She currently manages #YesWeCode's Coding Corps Marin pilot, where she oversees program operations. 
Krista believes tech is a gateway to opportunity for all motivated individuals. Her journey into the tech industry began in 2014, where she immediately fell in love with the fast paced work environment. Though she throughly enjoyed her work, she couldn't help but realize the lack of diversity in the industry and set out to do something about it. 
Prior to joining #YesWeCode, Krista worked as a Program Manager at the platinum ranked accelerator Alchemist Accelerator and it's sister company The Influencer Series. Krista holds a BS in Hospitality and Tourism Management with a minor in Business Administration from San Francisco State University. 
Krista was born and raised in sunny San Diego, California. She is a lover of California Burritos and Concerts.

"Diversity brings so much more to the table - and by focusing outside of the usual and rewarding all sorts of people in tech - we can only make it better. #YesWeCode is doing exactly that."
- Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple
